Come home to paradise at this one-acre sanctuary in Whenuapai

Located on the water-side of sought-after and tightly-held Totara Road and surrounded by multi-million dollar estates, this property truly offers the best of both worlds. The peace, privacy and tranquillity of rural living, but only four minutes from the motorway onramp and 30 minutes from the airport off-peak. The current owners have lived here for the past 10 years and have relished the truly privileged lifestyle and community spirit of the village. The neighbourhood is zoned for Whenuapai Primary and Hobsonville Point High, with a bus stopping outside the front gate to take kids to other North Shore Schools. Hobsonville Point’s ferry service, along with the one from West Harbour Marina, make life easy for CBD commuters, plus the Point now offers a great selection of dining options and farmers market.

Towering trees line the sweeping driveway, with the expansive, flat grounds located back from the road. The single level brick and tile home was originally crafted by a builder for himself, so offers excellent peace of mind when it comes to structure and finishing. It’s been immaculately maintained over the years, elegantly modernised to create bright and contemporary spaces for family living. Picture windows flood the rooms with light and sun and showcase the spectacular rural view from every angle. The formal lounge room can be closed off when required and flows into the open-plan casual living, dining and kitchen space. The kitchen was redesigned to become the heart of the home, ensuring the chef is connected to guests and boasting a breakfast island and vast amounts of cleverly designed storage.

Multiple sets of sliding doors open out to the resort-style alfresco living, where the spacious paved terrace overlooks the tropical in-ground swimming and spa pool complex. All the hard work has been done in the stunning gardens, with plantings specifically chosen for colour and as homes for the generations of native birds that visit. Expansive flat lawns are framed with mature trees and hedges, creating an excellent sense of privacy.

There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms located along the hallway, three with their own outdoor access. The romantic master boasts a decadent, earthy-toned colour scheme and stylish pendant lights, as well as a walk-in wardrobe and luxurious tiled ensuite.

The two-bedroom minor dwelling is completely separate from the main house and has been fully redecorated. It’s got the huge bonus of a double, internally-accessed garage and private outdoor living.  It’s currently rented at $530 per week, with excellent tenants who are keen to stay on.  This presents the perfect guest or extended family accommodation, home office or mortgage payment boost.

With two permitted homes in a spectacular, sought-after location, this estate presents the best of country living without sacrificing city conveniences.

Current owners are able to offer extended generous settlement terms which could give buyers with property to sell, the ability to come and buy with confidence.
